Join us at 5pm ET today for a hangout from the GOP convention. We'll also be doing one for the Democratic convention. 
Join our Google+ hangout today at 5 p.m. EDT from the Republican National Convention in Tampa.  What questions do you have for deputy managing editor Alan Murray and Washington bureau chief Gerald Seib? What do Republicans need to accomplish during the now-shortened RNC? 

If you could Google-hangout with anyone, who would it be?

Turns out Google decided it was a good idea to put their G+ tips and tricks for the media page on G+ itself. Huzzah!

Update: Upon further conversation with Google's Sean Carlson, it turns out this page of tips and tricks for the media will not actually be on Google+ (which is a bit of a missed opportunity, in my humble opinion). The page exists here and they plan to keep updating it with new tips: http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/media/

Earlier: Sounds like Google will soon be starting a G+ page for journalists to collect tips, tricks and examples of best practices (I'm at Google today for a WSJ orientation.) I think this will help journalists use the platform a bit more effectively. What do you think? What would be most helpful to you to see on that page? For me, I just want to better keep up with new features here, and see how other media are using it.
